[Solved] Change Scrollwheel direction into any direction in Cubase and a lot more

Hi everyone,

there are a lot of support questions about changing the scroll wheel direction for horizontal and or vertical movement or any other Key-Mouse behavior.

You can archive any behavior with the tool X-Mouse for every program in Windows7, 10, 11 separately as well.

Say you want to have the horizontal scroll in any editor, with SHIFT+SCROLLWHEEL UP to the beginning and SHIFT+SCROLLWHEEL DOWN to the end in the main editor. No problem.

It’s tested and checked about several month now in all projects and works perfectly for Cubase and it doesn’t affect other programs on your Windows system.

  1. Install the tool and click [Settings] > Modifier Keys > Active Layer 2 > “SHIFT”
    That means X-Mouse is prepared to watch the SHIFT key.

Click OKAY.

  1. Click [Add] in the main window of X-Mouse.
  • Find the CubaseXX exe
  • Enter Cubase XX to the description textbox
    Click OKAY.
  1. Select your new Profile Cubase XX > Layer 2

change Wheel Up to Wheel Down
change Wheel Down to Wheel Up

Close and don’t forget to save your X-Mouse profile for later. Done!

X-Mouse is able to change the mouse behavior completely for your needs. And more, it’s able to activate a separate mouse control for each single Editor-Window in Cubase.
This is really amazing!

I’d like to add some screenshots, But the forum system doesn’t let me for the first time.

Hi! Thank you for sharing your knowledge! Is it possible to tweak X-Mouse to not invert horizontal scrolling behaviour for lower pane Melodyne?

Hi, sorry I do not understand exactly what you mean by lower pane melodyne.
Did you mean in the program melodyne? I’m sure you can configurate any program and also single windsows completely differently. But for me it was enough to change in cubase. You must try or ask in the forum of x-mouse. X-mouse is complex but it works.

I mean Melodyne open in lower zone/panel of Cubase not in separate window
